Well, the 1967-10-22 Dew just finished and I think I am going to let it ride right into New Potato Caboose---wooofuckinhoo! I've got a few more things to do at the office before I go so I'll probably even get the CE>TOO>CE in before calling it a weekend.

As I said recently, this show was the one that made me realize why pathological, primal heads cannot even stand for people to discuss Later Dead (this is a sub-group more rabid and virulent than your run-of-the-mill Eighty-Hatie.)
Me? I'm kind of like "whirlwinddancer 65-95": I like it all, just some are more likey than others.

You would be well served to invest an hour or so in this show. I think one time you said you were a younger head, no? So to put this show in perspective, you have to remember what the straight was "groovin'" to then:

(Editor's note: Writer exceeded his cut-n-paste skills and screwed the chart up. The first line is the dates at number one; next, group and song; final line, number of weeks at number 1. Snicker: Please note what song was the longest at the top? Glad I can't be blamed for that.)

cool historical background. And yes I am almost 23. Been listenin to the dead since I was 14-15. Really got it by 16 and have been getting it more and more ever since. Most recently (a few years ago) I jumped the 76 fence into the early 70s, which i never really got. I now dig mostly that. Though I'm with ya, I think its all good. Each year has its stuff. Me and my bud were jammin hard last night to some 1994 goodies. And this morning it was 68. I love the dead!!!!

Actually, that's a great bunch of chart toppers compared with the pile of dog shit people are listening to nowadays.

I still have a hard time believing that the guy who co-wrote Incense and Peppermints for Strawberry Alarm Clock is the same guy who is riffing away on Sweet Home Alabama.
